Liverpool legend Carra warns Suarez: You won't be No1 at Barcelona

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher feels Luis Suarez will struggle at Barcelona. He wrote in the Daily Mail: "So it is official: Luis Suarez has gone the way of Michael Owen and Fernando Torres, to seek a fresh challenge after lighting up the Barclays Premier League in Liverpool red.

"But now here's the question: will he get the same kind of adulation in Camp Nou as he did at Anfield?

"Or will he end up like Owen and Torres, searching for affection and struggling to replicate the devastating goals-per-game ratio they had in their Merseyside pomp?

"Strikers who are brought into Barcelona don't get the option of operating through the middle because that is the domain of Lionel Messi. He is the king, the man around whom this particular team is built and others have to tailor their game accordingly.

"Think about it: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Neymar, Alexis Sanchez - all brilliant attackers, all undisputed match-winners, but none of them flourished alongside Messi. Even David Villa, for all his brilliance and the trophies he won, became frustrated towards the end of his time at Barcelona playing second fiddle to Messi."
